4Points Expeditions provides a safe, memorable experience, with the idea that each of us has the responsibility to preserve our wild places and reduce our impact. We believe in 'Leave No Trace' travel: the wilderness offers us beauty, solitude and grandeur; we repay her by ensuring future generations enjoy the same experience. 

For the 2018 Immersion Period, 4Points is offering the options below. Each option is potentially available as a separate course. Sign up for the experience(s) you prefer and we will offer the most popular choices that we can staff.

 

ALOHA Island expedition:

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COURSE HAS BEEN REVISED. THE SAILING COMPONENT HAS BEEN REMOVED DUE TO EXPECTED WEATHER CONDITIONS. CLICK BELOW TO SEE THE REVISED PLAN.

Our adventure begins with two days prep-time in Los Angeles. From LA we’ll journey to the island of Maui where we’ll spend the next 8 days exploring one of the world’s most diverse landscapes. Our home will be tents and cabins along the Pacific Ocean. We will kayak, paddle board, sail, snorkel, outrigger canoe and learn about our ocean environment. Our land-based adventures include hiking and mountain biking the forests and hills of the island interior. Each day will be filled with dynamic challenges that will enhance our exploration of self, the power of choice, innovation, vision, ownership and personal leadership. Each morning and evening we take time to practice mindfulness, reflective thinking and discussion. The final creative project will summarize our experiences, our understanding of Aloha, and our personal growth from this adventure in Hawaii’s natural land. We can then return home to share what we’ve learned to inspire living Aloha back home.
